How can I create a DVD from an International Organization for Standardization (ISO) image file under Windows Server 2003?

A. The Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools include the Dvdburn command-line utility, which you can use to burn an image to DVD. The syntax is

dvdburn <dvd drive>: <image file>

For example, when I type

C:\>dvdburn e: d:\temp\wxpsp1plus.iso

the utility displays the following information and writes the image to DVD:

Media type: DVD-R

Finished Writing
Waiting for drive to finalize disc (this may take up to 30 minutes).................
Success: Finalizing media took 1325 seconds
Burn successful!
